1 lonely Pancake done Paleo.

There's hundreds of blogs out there with fantastic recipes for pancakes, gluten free pancakes and even grain free pancakes, paleo pancakes; most are fabulous and most make enough for 2-6 servings. I wanted to figure out a good recipe, one serving, or lonely pancake for me. I generally eat breakfast alone, and paleo can get extremely boring if all you have are eggs and meats for breakfast. I do make my own almond meal and I don't  blanch for the extra fibre, but you can use blanched almond flour. Although this recipe does have an egg, it is for one cake, a lonely little pancake .... It's so I personally don't over eat, or have a stale pancake for the next day...nobody wants to eat the stale pancake! 

So, the list of ingredients is short, if you already eat paleo, you should have all the ingredients in your cupboard. 

2 tablespoons almond meal/flour. 
1 tablespoon coconut flour
1 teaspoon tapioca flour (optional)
1/4 teaspoon baking powder 
1 med egg (you can use large and omit the water)
1-2 tablespoons water (if batter is too thick) 

1 teaspoon butter 

Heat butter in a ceramic pan at just past med heat, until bubbly melted. In a small bowl mix all ingredients well until all dry ingredients are incorporated. Add butter to batter mix well and drop all batter onto hot pan spread evenly. At this point you can add blueberries, bacon, currants, banana slices or whatever you want to the pancake.  Let it cook at med heat until top start to set and pancake has risen a bit you, flip and continue cooking. These cook slower than regular an cakes, button out light and fluffy. Enjoy with maple syrup or homemade paleo blueberry spread....or plain. This makes a perfect one pancake serving, keeps calories down and reduces food waster (chucking out the stale pancake) .... I hate wasting food! And I'm thrifty...those who read my blog already know!! 


P.S. I would post a picture, but you all already know what a pancake looks like and....well, I sort of like to eat my food hot, so I have ended up eating the lonely pancake before he gets his portrait taken.
